Since more than 300 years, Rum is one the most diverse spirits in the world. There is no other distillate which is produced and aged in so many different countries around the globe. Each Rum-producing country has its own history, identity and special traditions when it comes to Rum making.
Rum is distilled on every continent in the world. In some countries Rum distillation started centuries ago. Every distillery is unique, with their own distillation- and ageing techniques. It is our mission to find casks from a wide range of different distilleries, which represents the historic diversity that Rum has to offer.
Every Rum origin has its own style and traditions when it comes to Rum making; there are difference in the choice of the base material, fermentation techniques, distillation methods, ageing climates, wooden casks types and so on. As a result, we are spoiled with a huge variety of Rums available today.
The Rum World
Rum is one the most diverse and historic spirits in the world. There is no other distillate which is produced and aged in so many different countries around the globe. Rum is produced on every continent, from Jamaica to Japan, from Australia to Venezuela and from South Africa to the United States.
All Rums in the Smuggler's Reserve range are aged in wooden casks in their countries of origin. Aging Rum can be done in many different ways. Some aspects with most influence on the taste of the Rum are the type of wood in which the Rum has aged and the climate where the cask has aged.
